Peter Madsen: Comfortable Inside and Out

By Published: June 5, 2006

"I wrote some music to the Nine Greek Muses. There is a great trumpet player that lives in my area. He's also a great classical player. I wrote this music and thought it would be great for trumpet and piano, I had another friend of mine write some poetry to these Nine Muses, so it's an interesting project.

Interesting seems to be a theme, for which listeners can be glad.
